3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a murky amber color with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and a crisp finish. Sweet with some spiciness and some chocolate notes in the finish. I enjoy Marzens and I think this is a particularly good one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Lost Lake. Pours a crystalline dark gold. Crisp lager nose with cereal, woody hops and a hint of spicy rye. I love how well the subtle rye comes through in this lighter bodied beer. Flavor is balanced, crisp malts. Notes of cereal and fresh corn with a modest hop bite and timid, but rewarding rye notes. The finish is ever so slightly "off" but the lines here at this music dive are likely suspect. I enjoyed this enough to try it again from some fresh bottles or from the brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
*******Pours a clear amber with small head and no lacing. Tastes of caramel malt with some rye. Herbal hop flavor. Sweet taste initially that is mild, then turns moderately bitter throughout the rest. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Chewy. Almost comes off more of a scotch ale. Long, medium bitter finish. Not bad, but great divide does some others much better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice thick white head in a golden red highly carbonated beer.
Spicy and floral, a nice fresh malt and hop aroma.
Light, spicy and sweet, Thai food in a glass. Mellow fruits, pineapple and watermelon, mixed with nice spicy hops.
The finish is crisp and the light malt gives the beer a slightly spicy bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber color with a transient light cream foam and excellent clarity; no lace. Smells of honey, munich malts and some tea like character. Nice nose. Flavor follows with some sweet honey malts and a little bit of tea like character from hops/malts. Body is a little heavy (expected from addition of Rye) with light carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer, would drink on a pint special.
